- 1 pound boneless chuck, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
- 2 pounds ground beef, coarse grind
- 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
- 2 teaspoons granulated onion
- 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
- 3 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons hot paprika
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons ground coriander
- 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 1 cup tomato paste
- 12 ounces lager beer
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 2 (15.5-ounce) cans pinto beans, with juice
- 2 (15.5-ounce) cans kidney beans, with juice

In large stock pot over high heat, add butter and bacon grease. Add bell pepper, jalapeno, chiles and onion and cook until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute a minute longer. Add chuck and brown. Add ground beef and sausage to brown and stir gently, trying not to break up the ground beef too much. Cook until meat is nicely browned and cooked through, about 7 to10 minutes. Add in granulated onions, granulated garlic, chili powder, paprika, cumin, coriander, cayenne, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute. Add in tomato sauce and paste and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in beer and chicken stock. Add beans, lower heat and simmer for 2 hours.
Serve in bowls over Double-Fried French Fries and garnish with Saltine crackers, green onions and shredded Cheddar.
Double-Fried French Fries
- 4 (4 to 5-inches long) russet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
- 2 quarts canola oil
- 1 tablespoons fine-grain sea salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Peel potatoes on the sides, leaving the ends with the skin on. Cut the potatoes into 1/3-inch slices and then slice into 1/3-inch sticks.
Fill a large bowl with water and soak potatoes, submerged, for at least 30 minutes up to 24 hours. This will help remove the excess starch from the potatoes and keep them from oxidizing.
Heat a heavy stock pot fitted with a deep-fry thermometer with oil to 325 degrees F.
Remove potatoes from the water, and pat dry to remove excess water. Add 2 handfuls of potatoes to hot oil. There should be at least 1-inch of oil above the potatoes. Par cook until potatoes are light brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove potatoes, gently shaking off excess oil and let drain on rack. Repeat until all of the potatoes are par cooked.
Raise heat of oil to 350 degrees F.
Cook potatoes again, 2 handfuls at a time, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from oil, shake off excess oil, and season lightly in a bowl with salt and pepper. Repeat until all potatoes are cooked.

Try to remember this EVERY TIME you have to talk to a customer service representative and you cannot understand them. I did not know that we could do this, but I sure am going to try it. Help bring jobs back to the U.S.A. Ask for an American!
How to save some American jobs and we can help!
I want to share with you some great information that I found out purely by accident. I believe it can also save and create jobs in America while giving people better customer service.
So how many times have you called a company's service phone line and found that the representative could barely speak English? Once with a major mortgage company it was so bad I demanded to speak with someone who spoke English. Right at that moment I broke the code, the secret password for customer service.
Come to find out that every American company using overseas operators must transfer you to an American representative by your saying......
"I want to speak to a representative in America ."
(Don't take no for an answer on this.)
This was confirmed by the American representative that they must transfer you after that request. I've tried it on a half a dozen major companies including cable, bank, phone and mortgage companies. It works every time and I actually get my issues taken care of.
Last thing to help save even more jobs.... don't use the automated check out lanes they are pushing at the big box stores. Once again, I found out that if we use those check outs rather than cashiers, people lose their jobs too. I've refused to use the automated check outs and have had two cashiers already thank me for helping them keep their jobs.
